I promised to post this week about the projects on my ‘Spring into Summer’ Table.

 

Never one to break a promise, I’m starting with my Denim Applique Sailboat Cushion.

 

Denim Sailboat Cushion (Pretty Patches July16)

 

I originally designed this cushion for a summer edition of Pretty Patches Magazine.

I loved re-purposing some denim and scraps for this nautical cushion.  My recent discovery of Aurifil 12wt wool thread also made a significant contribution!  You can read more about my designing process here.

 

The great news is that I’ll be teaching a workshop on this cushion on Saturday 19th May at my classroom in Conway Mill.

 

 

 

And not only that, kits will be available with everything you need to make the cushion, including lush Essex Yarn Dyed Linen, denim pieces, stripey binding and a bright red button for the back!

 

How cool is that!

 

 

So if you would like to spend a fun Saturday with other like minded creatives learning new skills like appli-quilting and free motion sketching, then just drop me an email to register: justjudedesigns@hotmail.co.uk

 

More ‘Spring into Summer’ posts coming soon!

 

Happy sewing!

Class Vacancies & New Saturday Workshops

Hi there,

 

It’s been a beautifully cold and sunny day here!  And I can already notice a little stretch of more light in the evenings!  Hooray!

 

I have had a fantastic start to my new classes at The Mill, with great feedback from my inaugural classes.  And I can now release the next 6 week block of classes.

 

 

 

If you would like to learn a new skill, get some long standing projects completed, or join in with our optional class project (Denim Hexie Bag) then drop me an email to book a place.

 

All abilities are welcome, and you will find a hot cuppa, friendly faces, and a light and spacious classroom to work in.

 

Saturday Workshops:

 

I’m also announcing my first term of one-day Saturday workshops.

 

 

What better way to spend a Saturday than sewing fun projects alongside enthusiastic sewers in a relaxed and fun environment!  Here’s a little more information on each of the workshops.

 

Flex and Framed Purses: 

 

Flex Frame Sunnies Pouch

 

Not only do these make for great gifts, but they are so practical too!  Keep your glasses and sunglasses safe and protected in these cute flex frame cases.

 

Framed Purses - fabrics by Zazzle

 

And learn how to make these stylish metal framed purses for your make-up or essentials (perhaps even a little English Paper Piecing!).

 

 

And speaking of EPP, I will have kits available of my Hexie Framed Purses, as well as the hardware for both pouches.

 

Family Tree Wallhanging:

 

Autumn Tree Wallhanging (Pretty Patches Oct16 issues)
27″ x 30″

This wallhanging covers quilting and applique techniques.  You can make it seasonal e.g. an Autumn tree, a Spring tree or perhaps a ‘Christmas Tree’! Or turn it into your Family Tree and embroidery names on the leaves!

 

Denim Sailboat Cushion:

18″ x 18″

 

If you like a spot of up-cycling, then why not turn some of your unwanted denim into this nautical themed cushion!

 

Have fun with ‘appli-quilting’, feature quilting and a little free motion sketching!

 

Kits will be available to purchase at the workshop.

 

Large Toiletry Bag:

 

Travel Washbag

 

This is a sizeable pouch, with room for all your bottles and toiletries!

There’s even a handy toothbrush and toothpaste bag, with wipeable rip-stop lining.

And don’t worry about that zipper!  It’s easy peasy to put in!

 

So those are the fun workshops up for grabs!  Places are limited, and a few of the workshops are already half booked, so please don’t leave it too long to sign up!  Again, just drop me an email to justjudedesigns@hotmail.co.uk.

 

Happy sewing!
